Be humble, train hard, and have a plan to go all the way
Three things are important - character, hard work, and a plan. But the most important of these is the plan. Talent is useful, but no-one makes it in boxing on talent alone. Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard
So, one of the first things the Pro-Pare® Athlete Development System does is generate a plan for you to make it as a boxer.
For example, one of our boxers turns 15 in 2019. He is classed as a junior boxer. His medium term goal is to compete in the 2022 Youth Olympics in Dakar, Senegal. Our main goal for 2020 is for him to win, or compete in the final, of his weight divsion in the 2020 NZ championships. To get there he needs to be registered as an amateur this year (2019) and to get an amateur fight before Xmas.
Our fighter needs to win fights. In our view most fights are won before a boxer steps in the ring. Boxer development has four components - two are mental and two are physical.
This is the technical side of boxing - how to punch, combinations, how to defend, footwork, bag work, pad work, and sparring.
You don't need the coach around for this stuff. Boxing requires high levels of aerobic fitness. It is a power sport which rewards hand speed, foot speed, head speed, and agility
Boxing is a lonely sport. Boxers train several hours a day for three hundred days a year in order to fight for a few minutes on half a dozen days a year. It's tough to remain motivated. It's tough getting smacked in the head.
Sometimes it is possible to watch video of an opponent before a fight. More often a boxer has to identify an opponent's strengths and weaknesses in the ring, and devise plans to exploit weaknesses and counter strengths.
